The Battle of Znaim: Napoleon, The Habsburgs and the End of the War of 1809

The Battle of Znaim: Napoleon, The Habsburgs and the End of the War of 1809 The little-known Battle of Znaim (10th-11th July 1809) was the last battle to be fought on the main front of the Franco-Austrian War, and began as a result of the Austrian decision to stage a rearguard action near Znaim, prompting the Bavarians to unsuccessfully storm a nearby town. Battle ensued, with the village changing hands a number of times over the course of the two days. John Gill delves deep into the respective tactics of both sides as the two armies continually changed positions and strategies. His account dissects and investigates the dual aspects of the Battle of Znaim, and explains the diplomatic decisions that resulted in the peace treaty which was signed at Schonbrunn Palace on 14th October 1809. $43.00 USD

The Light Division in the Peninsula War: 1808-1811 This first volume of two uses memoirs from across the division, including the artillery, the King's German Hussars, and others to complete a broader history of Wellington's elite Light Division. Newly converted light infantry regiments joined the the 95th Rifles in a brigade that was to form the basis of the incomparable Light Division. From the outset of the Peninsular campaigns in 1808, they delivered results way beyond their scant numbers, especially during the epic winter retreat to La Corunna.

Over the winter of 1809/10, Craufurd's battalions, now elevated to the status of a division, provided the army's outposts. This was work that Craufurd excelled in and actions abounded, including the Combat on the Coa, where the division fought hard to escape Marshal Ney's trap. In 1810, with Wellington withdrawing to the Lines of Torres Vedra, the Light Division played a significant part in the battle of Busaco Ridge, while the following year they drove Marshal Massena's army back into Spain having fought almost daily actions en route. $43.00 USD

Blazing Star, Setting Sun: The Guadalcanal-Solomons Campaign November 1942-March 1943

Blazing Star, Setting Sun: The Guadalcanal-Solomons Campaign November 1942-March 1943 Continues the Guadalcanal-Solomons campaign history from his previous magnificent book, Morning Star, Rising Sun. By the end of February 1944, thanks to hard-fought and costly American victories in the first and second naval battles of Guadalcanal, the battle of Empress Augusta Bay, and the battle of Cape St. George, the Japanese no longer held the materiel or skilled manpower advantage. Jeffrey Cox's analysis and attention to detail of even the smallest events are second to none. But what truly sets this book apart is how he combines this microscopic attention to detail, often unearthing new facts along the way, with an engaging style that transports the reader to the heart of the story, bringing the events on the deep blue of the Pacific vividly to life. $50.00 USD
